Just got back from two nights at pierce lake. The hike is pretty much all uphill on the way to the lake. With an average grade of 13% and 8km distance to the lake, it is quite steep and strenuous(feel the burn). My friend and I both had 40+ pound packs and it took us about 4.5 hrs of hell to reach the lake. The return trip is pretty much all downhill and took us 2 hrs. Tons of fish jumping and feeding up there, however, it is difficult to get a line into deeper water as the lake is quite shallow for some ways out.

well your in way better shape than me dude or my belly boat is a heck of a lot more than your 40 packs. Took me a wee bit longer than 4.5 hours to get there i wont just say how much longer and i just didnt understand how hard a trip it was till about 2 hours into it . and on the way back the trail was full of cougar tracks .

We experienced the exact same feelings. About 2hrs into it we were wondering what exactly we had gotten ourselves into. You think it will flatten out....but then you round the corner and see another switchback anyways... how was the fishing?
